Been having similar issues myself. I'm having problems staying connected to verichat. Keeps disonnecting for no reason. My buddy list will be there but I'm not connected. I usually have to log off and close then sign back in. Getting a little aggrivating. I just got my BB7520 last week and still trying to figure everything out.

if you are trying to run the software right after activating a new phone it will not work right away.. sometimes it takes up to a couple of days to actually be able to use verichat.. NOL will still work however.

rednec,

Did you upgrade to Verichat 1.78 or later? It now autoreconnects, so it is much more reliable now.

blake.blake,

Did you just recently activate your Nextel? If Reqwireless WebViewer and other MDS apps are not working either, then your problem is with Nextel first. Test other MDS apps too, to find out if this is the case.

yea i got the blackberry today, ive had nextel for years but upgraded the service

is there somehting they possibly forgot to put on the plan, it took them 4 times to get it right... retarts....

any other surefire mds apps that i could test? the 411 prog works

or should i wait a few days like xxhiyanxx said... does it make a difference??

also would this be it???
Nextel/Telus - iDEN - Works with TCP/IP
They are special because they are iDEN and more native TCP/IP. You need to order the static IP address option. This is done differently from the APN method. You have to call your Nextel/Telus customer service rep and order the static IP address, which is reported to cost about $4 extra per month for Nextel customers.


PS how long does it normally take to log on to verichat>?

It usually takes me about 10 to 15 seconds to logon to Verichat on my BlackBerry. If it takes more than one or two minutes, then something is wrong.

I would suggest testing Reqwireless WebViewer from http://www.reqwireless.com ... It's a useful color HTML browser for your BlackBerry too.

You should call Nextel and make sure that the full Packetstream service is completely enabled on your Nextel, with static IP address enabled.

Things should be just fine in a couple of days from now, I hope -- just keep working at it, but just test briefly once a day. Call up Nextel too as well. Then everything should work after a while, if history is of any note (About 2-3 days after activation)

MSN is having massive problems today -- My desktop MSN doesn't work.

AIM is working just fine on my Verichat -- but MSN does not work, but that's definitely not Verichat's fault. (My desktop MSN doesn't work either!)

I had to call BB support today for some email issues. They got me straightend out there, but now I can't connect to verichat at all. Just keep getting the PDAapps screen. We did a major reset on my phone so that may have something to do with it. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be back up and running. Atleast I have my email working properly.

You need the IPPP service books (Options->Service Books). Try getting your service books retransmitted. Go to your BWC and get them retransmitted using the "Send Service Book" button. Also try Options->Host Routing Tables->Register Now.
